Halloween card

Welcome to my blog!

I have made this card with lot's of Tim Holtz products. I started off and painted the stamps, "Pumpkinheads" from Stampers anonymous - Tim Holtz, with Distress ink's. I used Coredinations Kraft-cardstock on the frame and also inside for the red "drip edge". Then I stamped a piece of patterned paper from the "Dapper" stack with the cobweb stamp from my new stampset "Skulls & Cobweb". After that i put some black texture paste from Deco-Art through a stencil to get the Halloween word on the side of the "window".
For the piece in the middle I have used Mixed media heavystock as a base, used my Claw die, put on some grit paste round the edges to get that textured surface. Then put on some Distress Oxide in Black soot, Distress spray stain in Black soot and Spiced marmalade. Finished it off with Distress crayon in Rusty hinge on the grit paste. 
The spiderweb is a diecut from one of Tim's mixed media set dies, made in Mixed media heavystock with Distrss Oxide in Black soot on. 
I embossed the spider stamp with black embossingpowder. 
Inside the card I have used a skull stamp treated with collage medium crazing, after that I put on some Distress crayons in Antique linen and Walnut stain. The background is the Skull stamp from the previous used stamp set embossed in gold. 
I also decorated my project with some Idea-ology pieces. 


Embossed spider.

This is the inside of the card:

I will try this card in the following challenges,

Wicked card

I have made this Hallowen card with a lot of Tim Holtz products. Started with the Coredinations kraft cardstock, then a piece of patterned paper from the "Dapper" stack. I used the cobweb stamp from the new stampset "Skulls & cobweb" as a background on the patterned paper. The pumpkins are from the new stampset "Pumkinheads" and they are painted with Distress Oxide's. Love these pumpkin stamps! I also used my new die, the word Wicked. So nice font! I made the spider to the left with a TH stencil and some texture paste, and when dry I put som Distress oxide on it. The spider to the right are from the new Ideaology. Finally I splattered the background with some black paint.
Eventhough we don't celebrate Halloween in a big manner here in Sweden, I love to make Halloween projects. ;)

I will try this card in a challenge over at Craftstamper magazine blog, September, Anything goes.

Crazy dog card

Here I have made a card with a background inspired by the talented Kath Stewart. I saw this technique in Craft stamper magazine a while ago.
I have used my Distress oxide's both for the background and also for colouring my stamp.
Love this dog stamp from Tim Holtz, crazy dogs. 
Fot the background I have used stencils and different stamps, and I also wanted to add some extra texture, so I embossed it with one of Sizzix Tim Holtz embossingfolders.
I have used som metallic tape on the pieces the dog are standing on. These pieces are also painted with Deco art acrylic paint and embossed with the same embossingfolder. 

I want to try this card over at Stamps & stencils, Metallics challenge.

Sue's birthday card

It's been a while since I put up something on my blog, but now it's time to share some of my latest creations. This is a card I made this summer for a friend who turned 50.
The stamp is from Kenny K and are painted with Distress ink's and reinkers. I have used dies from Sizzix Tim Holtz, Spellbinders Seth Apter and Magnolia. Sue liked her card very much and thought I have captured her "personality" well, which made me happy ;)

Collect beautiful moments card

I liked the techniques so much on my last project so I wanted to give it another try. This time I made a card, used my Distress Oxide's for the background. On this one I used two Tim Holtz stencils, one for the background but it's difficult to see, with circles. And one with the numbers. On the cogs in the right corner I used a Tim Holtz die and made myself a stencil (I cut it out in paper and used that die cut as a stencil) for the grit paste, and then put Distress crayon's above. I finished the card off with some words (Tim Holtz), and the dies used are from Sizzix (Tim Holtz).

I will try this card in two challenges:

Last year's birthday card for my brother

Last year I made a special birthday card for my brother. I made a card that looks like a garage. He works at a car company and he also compete in miniracing, so I think it is a suitable design. He is born on the 15:th of December and he likes Coca Cola. When the doors opens there is a stamp image from Kenny K, Racy Roxie and one from Tim Holtz, the car. 
I have used some techniques from Andy Skinner on the doors.

Some close ups;

Thanks for looking, and have a nice day.

My Father's birthday card


I have made this birthday card for my Father who´s birthday is on June 7:th. I struggled a little bit with some ideas on this card but got som help from my husband. He suggested to use some jeans/denim fabric and I think that did the final touch of the card.
My Father likes Western movies and also jeans and boots.
I have used some of Tim Holtz techniques on this card and I have also used the new Distress Oxide´s which I like a lot. The stamp are from Kenny K, Cheyenne. I have coloured her with Distress reinker´s and Distress ink´s.

Here are some close-up photo´s:

Pipeline tag

I have made this tag with a lot of Tim Holtz products, and I'm not sure if I will put this tag on another tag later, and continue the work with it. But for now it is finished. I have really enjoyed making this, with all the structure and techniques. I have used Tim's Tarnished silver technique on the pipes and added som crayons as well. That gave me the look I was after.

Here are some details:

I will try this tag in a challenge over at Simon says stamp blog. We've got your number.
